Food fest for a noble cause

Paradip: If you are a foodie and have irresistible desire to taste mouth-licking dishes then you probably missed out on an opportunity to experience the ‘Food and Fun’ festival organized by the Paradip Port Club (Ladies Wing) here on Saturday.

The port city denizens descended at the venue to devour the local gastronomic delights prepared by the members of the ladies club.

Mouth-watering delicacies included—‘dahi vada’, ‘aloo chop’, ‘biryani’, ‘gupchup’, ‘roll’, ‘papdi chat’, and ‘jalebi’ among others.

Apart from delicious food items, cultural programme was a huge crowd puller. As the time passed by, footfall swelled by overwhelming numbers. People had a memorable experience and enjoyed every bit of the function here.

This annual extravaganza is a rare example of fun blended with a noble cause. The sale proceeds from the festival are spent towards social welfare activities.
